Alfie commits to the U's long term
Oxford United are delighted to announce that forward, Alfie Potter, has agreed a new long-term deal with the U's.
24-year-old Alfie starred at the Kassam Stadium last season and has committed his future to the club by signing a new three-year deal which could keep him at Oxford until 2016.
Alfie told www.oufc.co.uk:
"Ever since I came through the door four years ago, I have loved being part of this club and I am really looking forward to being part of it again as we try and take Oxford United up to League 1 and beyond. The fans have been fantastic with me and I can't wait to get back for pre-season and get playing in front of them again.
"I did OK last year but want to keep improving and growing as a player. We have done a lot of strength and conditioning work which means that I feel so much fitter and stronger than when I first joined and I just want to help Oxford United do well."
Alfie joins Andy Whing - another big favourite with supporters - in signing long-term deals as the Club continues its strategy of building a stable squad of talented players capable of playing in higher divisions and which needs onlya small proportion of changes every 12 months.
Alfie's contract is for an initial two-year period with the club having a further option for an extra year.
Manager Chris Wilder was pleased to see the winger sign the new deal:
"I brought Alfie in as one of my first signings and he has progressed season on season. Hopefully he will continue to progress and improve and that will benefit the team and the club over the next two or three years. It is another indication that the senior players have real confidence in the way that Oxford United is going forward as a club.
"Alfie is a big favourite with the fans but also with the players and the staff and we are absolutely delighted that he has signed."
